We've been digging into poetry and have had loads of fun reading them. After writing our own rhyming poems, we decided to give 2 other poetry forms a try. The first one is a limerick. Here is our class limerick poem:
There once was a girl named Mandy.
And sometimes she ate too much candy.
It was a real treat,
To have something so sweet.
The candy store sure was handy!
The rules are as follows: 5 lines; lines 1, 2, and 5 all rhyme; lines 3 and 4 also rhyme. They loved this!
Here is our class alphabet poem:
Notice the rule? You begin with any letter of the alphabet and create one word per line with the next letter. Oh, and it needs to "tell a story" or make sense. Fun times!
